Welcome to the first installment of My Minibar. Each week, Minibar will be profiling creative and influential New Yorkers in the know who share our unique passion for imbibing. After they share their valuable insight, it'll be hard not to stock up with Minibar!
Our first edition of My Minibar shines the spotlight on Adam Benedetto, General Manager of Joseph Leonard in the West Village. Since Joseph Leonard is a Minibar favorite (its Bloody Mary has been an absolute lifesaver), we could think of no one better qualified than Adam to share some libationary wisdom. This is where and how he likes to get his drink on.
Favorite drink: The Cherry Lane, a drink by Brian Bartels served at Joseph Leonard.
- 3/4 oz Dolin Sweet Vermouth,
- 3/4 oz Dolin Rouge Vermouth.
- Shake with ice.
- Pour into a coupe and top off with 2 oz of Castellroig Cava Brut NV. Garnish with a cherry.
Favorite bar: Nights and Weekends in Greenpoint Brooklyn
Must-have home bar essential: Brenne Single Malt Whiskey. It's the best.
